Graduation Checklist


Congratulations on your upcoming graduation! 

You are required to see a counselor in order to apply for an associate degree. You may visit with a counselor from the Counseling Office, EOPS, LAP, UTC, MESA, STEM, CAN, or the Career Center. Degree requirements must be completed by the end of the semester in which you are planning to apply. Review the steps below to understand the application process for graduation.  

Deadline to Submit an Application for a Degree
Application for an Associate Degree
Student Authorization to Release Information

Applying only using AHC courses

Verify you will complete an associate degree.  You are able to verify your degree completion by using DegreeWorks which is located in your myHancock portal.  DegreeWorks is a degree audit tool which enables you to see your progress towards degree completion.  After you have verified your degree completion through DegreeWorks, you are ready to see a counselor.  We encourage you to see a counselor on a walk-in.  You and the counselor will complete an application for a degree.  Contact counseling for walk-in hours. 

Applying using courses from another College/University

Since you have attended another college/university, all your official transcripts must be sent to our Office of Admissions and Records.  Have transcripts mailed to:

Allan Hancock College
ATTN: Admissions & Records
Transcript Evaluator
800 South College Drive
Santa Maria,  CA  93454-6399

Once your transcripts have been received, you are required to schedule an appointment with a counselor in order for your coursework to be evaluated and to determine degree completion.  You may schedule a counseling appointment on our counseling webpage.  

Distance Learning Students

Distance learning students planning to file an application for an associate degree, will need to complete an Authorization to Release Information Form, which allows a counselor to correspond with you via phone and/or email.  Please contact the Counseling Department at (805) 922-6966 ext 3293 for more information.
